The day will begin with an interactive Underground Railroad field trip presentation. Then learn about the Buffalo Soldiers that came to Huntsville October 1898. Learn how they became soldiers, what they ate, medical treatment, where they served around the world, and then meet a special Buffalo Soldier from the time. Finally spend some time in our Rosenwald School by experiencing a school day in 1918. Learn how our pledge of allegiance was said, then how they learned their lessons with no electricity, indoor plumbing, no heat, no air conditioning, and no computers. This will be a day of fun and learning you will not forget. Plan to spend the day or pick and choose to participate in some of the activities. This event is free to members or regular admissions rates apply.
